Unable To Make Authorizations Using the answer_s Simulator <UTF8 characters are outside of the ASCII range> (Doc ID 1600070.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 28, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.4.0.0.0 to 7.4.0.1.0 [Release 7.4.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

If the credit card address (NAME, ADDRESS, STATE, CITY) contains UTF8 characters that are outside of the ASCII range, authorizations fail. The answer_s simulator throws error failing to process.
However, batch simulator answer_b works fine (fusas file generated doesn't contain the address if non-ASCII characters are found as EXPECTED when batch processing).
